EHESS/IMéRA chair: Application and residency condition

The EHESS-IMéRA chair in “Transregional Studies” aims at developing at the highest international level comparative research among any regions of the world. The research projects proposed should in particular take into account the involved scale effects and the related issues of exchange, circulation and connection in the reformulation of social orders. They should also build on innovative and clearly articulated interdisciplinary approaches. The EHESS-IMéRA chaire particularly welcomes research projects interested in the comparison between cultural areas. 

Submission: until 20th September 2018 at 1:00 pm (French time).

The EHESS (School of Advanced Studies in Social Sciences) is a prestigious French institution devoted to research and teaching in social sciences. The EHESS research and teaching activities also involve members of French and foreign partners. These activities are carried out at the Paris headquarters and at the regional centers of the institution (Lyon, Marseille and Toulouse) as well.

The chaire holder has to carry out these research themes within a coherent frame allowing to foster cooperation between EHESS and IMéRA and to assure sufficient visibility for the chaire activities, mainly through public conferences.
